Raise a workplace concern

HR supports a respectful workplace 

At Toronto Metropolitan University, we are committed to achieving a healthy and sustainable workplace that enhances and supports the wellbeing of all our employees. We foster a campus where consent comes first and work together to prevent, respond to and support individuals with their mental and physical safety. 

Accessing immediate support

In an emergency

In an emergency on campus, call 911. 
If you are ever in doubt of whether a situation is an emergency, you should call 911. It's better to be safe and let the dispatcher determine if you need emergency assistance. 

In a non-emergency

Contact TMU Community Safety and Security
For situations where timely assistance is required, but does not pose an immediate threat. TMU Security is available anywhere on campus, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
